TV - Rtn - Oct - All

Hi Everyone

Wow September has been a month of some of my favourite series returning and October is the same.

The long running Bones returns for an 11th Season, Arrow returns for its 4th Season, as well as its spin off The Flash for a 2nd season. The Vampire Diaries returns for its 7th Season, as well as its (better half) spin off The Originals for a 3rd Season. iZombie returns for a 2nd season after a great season 1., the disappointing Good Witch also returns for a 2nd season – there are been better shows like eg: Secret Circle, Golden Boy, Terra Nova, Almost Human and Ringer that i thought were better than Good Witch that were never given a 2nd Season and finally Reign returns for a 3rd Season
